Alternative Pokemon Art
Okay, so, obviously a lot of you reblogged this today, and I just wanted to say: the blog in question has stopped erasing picture sources, and even started linking to the blog that they reposted from (which isn’t really necessary, in my opinion, but at least they’re going the extra mile). So while he or she was kind of being rude to begin with, obviously they acknowledged that they fucked up and have made a concerted effort to actually do something about it. And I think that’s really important. (And please don’t bully the blog owner, let’s give them a chance to change.)
In case pokemonstuffism happens to see this post - if you ever need help learning how to source pictures, I’m willing to help you figure out how to do all that. There are better ways to gain followers than to hijack posts and erase sources, I promise.
I have recently been informed that apparently 4chan is planning on hacking blogs with over 50k followers, and using those blogs to post images of gore, rape, animal torture, etc. I don’t know for sure whether or not this is actually going to happen, or if Alternative Pokemon Art is going to be one of the ones targeted is it does; but on the off-chance that it is, I apologize in advance for any suffering or offense that it causes, and I assure you that it was not posted by me. In case this blog does get hacked, I will probably reform this blog under a different username and start again. If I do need to do that, I’ll probably post an announcement under the ‘pokemon’ tag, and on some of my Pokemon-related side blogs (some of you guys know what they are; if you don’t, check my FAQ).
It’s highly unlikely that this is actually going to happen - I mean, how long has 4chan been saying they’re going to do this? - but on the off-chance it does, I just wanted to post this.
That is all. Good day!
Edit: I’m also going to be working on updating the FAQ, because this version is old and much of the information is no longer applicable.
The redesign of a Ghost Pokemon family by request. I always thought this interpretation of Gastly was really clever.
Entei using Sacred Fire by request.
Edit: I deleted the ‘Artist’ link by accident, apologies. Please tell me if there’s ever a picture that you don’t see a source beneath; it means that I fucked up when trying to post the picture.
